My dreads just looked good for the first time ever.

I'm very happy, though. After leaving them to their own devices for the first 5 months, I've just started ripping and twisting the tips which were having a hard time locking up (my hair is naturally very soft). Admittedly they'd probably be a lot rounder if did more palm rolling, but I quite like them having their little kinks, and one starts to go flat I put a bead on it and move it about every day or so for about a week. I've found that it helps to round the dread and the friction helps it knot (I use big beads, so they slide about.)

Mega love!!
